To Dr. Karl's family I want to say that we are so very sorry for your great loss, my husband & I are praying for you now. To his mother also we want to say we are so sorry for the loss of your wonderful son, may our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ bring you comfort. Thank you for giving him life, for it was through you that many of us were blessed by his great gifted hands and heart. Like many people I was so blessed to be under his care, he not only treated me for my endocrine problems but he also took the time and care to help me deal with other health issues that were not in his field at all. I always founded funny that after he was finished with my thyroid and other issues he would say, "ok now lets take a look at your feet & see how your achilles tendons are doing", I would always say to him, "Dr. Karl, if those patients outside find out your examining my feet they'll get upset", he would just laugh. There was a time when I didn't have health insurance and told him I could no longer see him, he said to me, "once my patient always my patient, you can pay me when you can", I would ask him for the bill in other visits and he would just say, "don't worry you'll see it in the mail, but I never did. Thank you Dr. Karl for your beautiful hands, heart and gifted mind. Thank you for caring. May the legacy you left behind inspire many other Doctors. I love you and I will miss you dearly.
